latest for us. >> reporter: laura, good morning. she's already had tough criticism from senator john mccain and others who say if she couldn't get the story straight days after the attacks in benghazi, perhaps she should not be considered as a nominee for secretary of state. she has not gotten that nomination yet to take over for hillary clinton, but she is a top contender and to try to get out in front of this criticism, the president is sending her, along with the acting director of the cia, to capitol hill today to meet with mccain and two other senators who have been critical of her comments in the early days after that attack when she said it appeared to be the result of spontaneous protests and not, as we later discovered, an act of terror. she has said, susan rice has said she was working from talking points provided by the intelligence community. that's one of the reasons you'll see the acting cia director along with her today. will that satisfy mccain and these other critics? lindsey graham and senator kelly ayotte. she has said not only does she want sufficient explanation, she wa

rice would be succeeding. the president has made it clear he will fight for rice. >> if senator mccain and senator graham and others want to go after somebody, they should go after me. >> reporter: and today the white house was not backing down. >> the focus on, some might say, obsession on comments made on sunday's shows seems to me and to many to be misplaced. >> reporter: rice told the senator she wanted a chance to clear her name. but later, two of the senators she met with said they would still put a hold on her nomination. that's senate speak for blocking it. still, the white house is planning to fight for her, and senate democratic leaders say they can get her confirmed. >> andrea mitchell at the state department to start us off tonight. andrea, thanks. >>> overseas today in cairo, a dramatic scene in tahrir square. it looked a lot like those furious protests we saw against former president hosni mubarak, driven out early last year. but today's anger was directed at the new president, morsi. nbc's ayman mohyeldin is in tahrir square for us tonight. good evening, ayman. >> report

let him do it? >> let me switch gears a bit. i want to ask you about senator john mccain. he, of course, has been very critical about the potential nomination of u.n. ambassador susan rice to be secretary of state, something that hasn't happened yet. he appeared to strike a more conciliatory tone over the weekend. i'm going to play two statements for you, john mccain a few weeks ago and john mccain yesterday and ask you about it on the other side. >> we will do whatever is necessary to block the nomination that's within our power as far as susan rice is concerned. >> i think she deserved the ability and the opportunity to explain herself and her position, just as she said. >> chuck, very quickly, is this a very significant change? >> reporter: it is and it tells you something that a lot of people have told me presidents get their secretary of states. the question is how much pain is it going to come with? i'm told it's probably not this week, probably early next week that the president finally decides to name a secretary of state, just down to two, susan rice or john kerry, b
